    ER - I love teaching writing! Here's what I usually do each year. I designate one bulletin board for student work. I title the board "A Classroom Community of Writers." For each "i," I make a pencil with an eraser top. Then, I make a color mat (I use Crayola Art and Craft Paper in bold colors)for each child. At the top of each sheet I print (using a computer) Author....and the child's name. I take their pictures the first day of school and place them above each laminated mat. Then, I put two small peg tacks in just the right position to still show the name and picture, but where I can use the pegs as storage for writing samples! At the end of the year, I have a wonderful collection of writing samples in chronological order, and I always have a visible sample as I talk with parents. Best of Luck, and have a great school year!
